2 Direct Instruction
Show them the large “Paint” icon that appears on the desktop of the monitor screen.
Review that when we open a program from the desktop we have to double click the mouse.
On the SMARTBoard, locate the Paint toolbar and point to each tool button.
We will focus on and use the Line tool to draw, the Fill tool for adding color, and the Pencil tool to label their family members. Also we will use the Undo tool for mistakes.
Demonstrate drawing a picture of me using the Line tool. Then fill in colors with the Fill tool. Last, use the Pencil tool to label.
Watch as I go through the steps to creating a Family Portrait.
